I'm only comparing their style, not their status.

I've seen them live, and they've got a completely different vibe than what you'd expect by listening to their album. I enjoyed their set. Maybe they were just on that night, but I still don't understand all the hatred for them on this forum.

Neon Trees live

The Cramps were dangerous, unpredictable and not afraid to push boundries. They were everything that society rejected, focused into one fierce group. Neon Trees are boring, generic, contrived radio rock. Your mom would probably love them if you put them on for her. You are either a complete idiot who has terrible taste and no respect for The Cramps, or you are trolling big time and I just fell for it. You tell me.

Completely related, my girlfriend and I decided awhile ago (upon hearing Neon Trees on the radio) that they were singing about a fictional "parsley pie" (a pie with parsley as a filling, presumably), so whenever he says "I want some more", I say "parsley pie" in my head. Because that's what he wants more of.

And now that is what I will think of forever when I hear that song.

Also completely related... I seriously cannot make it throught one song of theirs. They may quite possibly be the worst band on the planet.

If you like the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard, you may like Sleigh Bells
If you like Yeasayer or Depeche Mode, you may like Cut Copy
If you like Reel Big Fish, you may like Aquabats (but if you like Reel Big Fish, Im sure you already listen to the Aquabats)
If you like the Bee Gees, you WILL like Scissor Sisters
If you like Interpol or Joy Division, you may like She Wants Revenge[/QUOTE]

I disagree here,
I really enjoy Sleigh Bells and their show in Atlanta was GREAT! and interactive with the crowd...VERY ENJOYABLE!

Cut Copy is like the knock off Depeche Mode bands of the 80's for me...like Camouflage...decent album but no depth.

Aquabats are as much fun as Gogol Bordello will ever be but without the INDIE bullshit moniker.

Well, yes. Jake Shears does sing with a falsetto voice (most of the time) the songs cross more from disco into darkwave at times.

(I'll get shot for this one cuz I actually enjoy SWR) Most people hear a droning vocalist and go back as far as Joy Division and then progress...so everything that has droning lyrics will be classified.
To me, SWR sound nothing like Interpol other than vocals that remain mostly monotone and without expression. Take from that what you will.

If you like a deeper voiced La Roux you may like Marina And The Diamonds

If you like Camouflage you may like Cut Copy

If you like Darkwave you may like Cold Cave
If you like quirky experimental electronic music you may like Yacht (sorry I can't say I can compare them to anyone)

I think Sleigh Bells is getting exactly the kind of reaction they want. Love them or hate them, they get a rise out of people and people talk about their show. I have yet to see them live, but love most of their album "Treats". I have heard that their show is very short and that may annoy me, but their music is fun!

The Morning Benders and The Shins? I'd compared The Morning Benders to Vampire Weekend. They lack the hooks of VW, but they definitely carry the same sound.

Disagree. Vampire Weekend is upbeat and catchier and uses strings and some island/Paul Simon/African sounds. Shins is a closer comparison but Morning Benders are a little more airy and hazy than The Shins i'd say.
